Reindeer Games | Behind The Scenes


Hi! My name is Owen and I’m nine-and-a-half years old. Owen is, in some ways, a completely typical nine-and-a-half year old and in other ways he’s completely remarkable. I think he’s the complete package. Owen was born with an extremely rare genetic disorder called Escobar Syndrome. He’s had 33 surgeries to date. Owen is in the wheelchair for long distances. There’s certain things that just aren’t a right fit for him. And I love video games, my friends, my family, again, video games. It’s pretty challenging if I need to use both thumbsticks and the D-pad at the exact same time. With the Xbox Adaptive Controller, we wanted to address these problems. We want everybody to be able to play games, regardless of their skill level or their physical abilities. What I like about the Adaptive Controller is no matter how your body is or how fast you are, you can play. He gets to play with all of his friends, when he might not necessarily be able to go outside and play with them. It’s important to us. It’s important to him. Yeah! Woo! Yeah, it’s a really good thing to have in this world, you know? Because now everyone can play.
